The University of Copenhagen is the oldest university and research institution in Denmark. Founded in 1479 as a studium generale, it is the second oldest institution for higher education in Scandinavia after Uppsala University . The university has 23,473 undergraduate students, 17,398 postgraduate students, 2,968 doctoral students and more than 9,000 employees. The university has four campuses located in and around Copenhagen, with the headquarters located in central Copenhagen. Most courses are taught in Danish; however, many courses are also offered in English and a few in German. The university has several thousands of foreign students, of whom about half come from Nordic countries.The university is a member of the prestigious International Alliance of Research Universities , along with University of Cambridge, University of Oxford, Yale University, The Australian National University, and UC Berkeley, amongst others. The Academic Ranking of World Universities, compiled by Shanghai Jiao Tong University, saw the University of Copenhagen as the leading university in Scandinavia and ranked 39th best university in the world in 2014. It is ranked 45th in the 2014 QS World University Rankings and 13th in Europe. Moreover, in 2013, according to the University Ranking by Academic Performance, the University of Copenhagen is the best university in Denmark and the 25th university in the world. The university has had 8 alumni become Nobel laureates and has produced one Turing Award recipient. Wikipedia.

Patent
Rigshospitalet, Copenhagen University and University of Southern Denmark | Date: 2017-01-06

The present invention relates to novel chimeric molecules of ficolin-associated polypeptides, such as fusion polypeptides for the use in the treatment of conditions associated with inflammation, apoptosis, autoimmunity, coagulation, thrombotic or coagulopathic related diseases. The present invention further relates to nucleic acid molecules encoding such fusion polypeptides, vectors and host cells used in the production of the fusion polypeptides.


The present invention relates to methods for increasing the suppression of hunger and/or increasing the reduction of prospective consumption and/or increasing the reduction of appetite and/or increasing the feeling of satiety and/or reducing non-fat energy uptake in the gastrointestinal tract of a mammal in order to prevent a positive non-fat energy balance, weight gain, overweight and obesity, and to induce a negative non-fat energy balance and weight loss in subjects who wish to reduce their body weight. In particular, feed, food and/or beverages and dietary supplements of the present invention comprises mucilage such as flax seed mucilage and/or one or more active compounds of mucilage useful for increasing the suppression of hunger and/or increasing the reduction of prospective consumption and/or increasing the reduction of appetite and/or increasing the feeling of satiety and/or reducing the digestibility of non-fat energy in the gastrointestinal tract of a mammal.

Patent
Copenhagen University | Date: 2017-04-19

An optical device (1) comprising a planar waveguide (12) and a quantum emitter (18) is presented. The planar waveguide (2) comprises a longitudinal extending guiding region (4) with a first side (6) and a second side (8). A first nanostructure (7) is arranged on the first side (6) of the guiding region (4), and a second nanostructure (9) arranged on the second side (7) of the guiding region (4). The planar waveguide (2) includes a first longitudinal region (10) where the first nanostructure (7) and the second structure (9) are arranged substantially glide-plane symmetric about the guiding region (4) of the planar waveguide (2), and the quantum emitter (18) is coupled to the first longitudinal region (10) of the planar waveguide (18).

The present disclosure relates to nanoscale device comprising an elongated crystalline nanostructure, such as a nanowire crystal, a nanowhisker crystal or a nanorod crystal, and a method for producing thereof. One embodiment relates to a nanoscale device comprising an elongated crystalline semiconductor nanostructure, such as a nanowire (crystal) or nanowhisker (crystal) or nanorod (crystal), preferably made of Indium Arsenide, having a plurality of substantially plane side facets, a crystalline structured first facet layer of a superconductor material, preferably Aluminium, covering at least a part of one or more of said side facets, and a second facet layer of a superconductor material, preferably Vanadium, covering at least a part of the first facet layer, the superconductor material of the second facet layer being different from the superconductor material of the first facet layer, wherein the crystalline structure of the semiconductor nanostructure is epitaxially matched with the crystalline structure of the first facet layer on the interface between the two crystalline structures.


Patent
Abbott Laboratories and Copenhagen University | Date: 2017-06-28

Provided are methods of diagnosing high risk adenomas or colorectal cancer by detecting the presence and/or amount of at least three biomarkers of CRC in a sample from a subject. The methods and biomarkers may be used to develop an accurate prognosis for a patient having CRC or at risk of having CRC or accurately diagnose a subject having or at risk of having CRC. The methods and biomarkers may be used to identify and/or classify a patient as a candidate for further CRC screening and/or CRC treatment therapy.


The present invention relates to a calcined diatomite aggregate coated with metal oxides, more specifically to a diatomite aggregate having a diameter larger than 2 mm.


Patent
Copenhagen University | Date: 2017-07-12
